Former Hong Kong chief executive Chun-ying Leung has called for a boycott of Mayer Brown, which has been embroiled in a high-profile political controversy in the city-state. Leung was the head of the Hong Kong government between 2012 and 2017.

Mayer Brown had earlier this month issued a legal letter to the now-defunct Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China and its liquidators, ordering that a renowned sculpture that has been standing on the campus of Hong Kong University (HKU) for over two decades be removed by Oct. 13.
